Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today released the following statement on the death of former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens:

            “My thoughts are with the family and friends of Justice John Paul Stevens.

            “Justice Stevens was an iconic figure on the Supreme Court for 35 years and one of the longest serving justices ever. He was a tireless advocate for civil liberties, women’s reproductive rights and the rights of criminal defendants.
